Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (EMET)


The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology program at Cincinnati State is the largest of its kind in Ohio.

The program combines electronics engineering technology and mechanical engineering technology, so students develop skills that are highly valued by industrial firms, including a focus on industrial automation. Students gain competencies in controlling systems, linking software and hardware maintaining systems, and improving machines and systems.

Graduates earn an Associate of Applied Science degree and are also prepared to pursue a bachelor's degree in fields such as electronics engineering, electrical engineering, or electro-mechanical engineering.
